of change, revving in detroit and super sized shark attack. gentleman rina lewis, let's talk about the job jobs. break them down. >> sluggish at best. 162,000 jobs added. the expectation was 185,000. even whispers of 200,000. so way off. to put it in perspective, at this rate it will take seven more years to make up for the jobs lost in what is now deemed as the great recession. and it gets worse. because even though unemployment is down slightly, it's a bit misleading because participation is down. you've got to remember, every day 10,000 baby boomers retire. what is replacing those jobs, two-thirds of the jobs are part-time largely in the retail sector, which is notorious for low wages. >> a lot of mill lessen kwrals are living at home with their parents. >> a lot of people in the industry are saying selection. these days you can't have a few models you have to have lots of models. there seems to be something about a truck, to borrow a line from a country song. g.m., 16%. ford, 11%. these are sales to consumers, not fleet sales or commercial sales where the margins are lower. >> that is
who came to detroit in 2009. this is more -- is more general. i think if anything's changed it's that in the aftermath of the attack on our facility in benghazi and the deaths there of four americans and the continuing ha la ba lu from congress about embassy safety, people just want to err on the side of taking extra precautions. they don't have the same kind of specificity here they've had in other threats. what they have is significant personalities being involved in the threat stream and i think that's why they take it seriously. >> we are living in a post-benghazi world and benghazi drives so much of this. >> exactly. so richard haas, talk a little bit about -- what's the president's for closing -- precedence for closing 22 embassies and this al qaeda resurgence. >> let me start with the latter. people are focusing on the u.s. reaction which i think is appropriate. the bigger story this is the new normal. this is now a middle east where you no longer have countries that are essentially controlled by their governments. it's been the case in pakistan for some time, which is w

anything about detroit, 47% illiteracy rate, didn't do anything about camden, new jersey. south central, send your kid to south central, they could see the hippy commune. how about reality. figured i have money, i can send my kids somewhere safe where they can grow up, won't advocate for other kids having a shot at the same thing. >> i am all for choice. advocate for change, whatever it is. he does agitate me. >> what a washing machine does. >> he can send his kid where he wants, why can't all parents have that option, parents that don't make the money he does on movies. he speaks for teachers, it is hypocritical, but what's worse, he supports leaders and politicians who do not empower choice for parents to pick schools. this is a great opportunity for president obama, charter school, to reach out on education and he hasn't done it. it is another missed opportunity. send your kid to private school, just let other parents be able to do the same. >> greg, president obama did reach out to charter schools. first thing he did, pulled the plug on students in washington, d.c. and matt damon su
the detroit tigers, and others saying here's what we should add to baseball's arsenal -- the right at the team's discretion to void a long-term contract if a player is found, and after he gets due process and goes through appeals, so it's a fair process, if the player is found to have used peds, the team has the right to void the long-term contract. in the case of ryan braun, for example, he loses $3 million. that's a lot of money. but there's still about $100 million left on the contract. if you put in that clause, that you could void a deal, that's a tremendous disincentive. >> bob costas of nbc sports, thank you so much. what an important time with the suspension of alex rodriguez coming down to tomorrow according to your reporting from nbc sports. bob, thank you as always. >>> andrea mitchell, you're such a big sports fan. my own son said to me if one of his players he really likes a lot is caught up in this, he's going to throw away his jersey. this really matters in terms of the future of the game. >> baseball is america. baseball to me is essential sport. and the fact that it has been s
the underwear bomber in detroit, we had major hassan inspired by awlaki who's now going on trial here for the ft. hood shootings. we had the attempted new york city subway bombing. times square bombing. so a lot of this stuff has continued and can still affect our homeland. i think chertoff on balance can make a pretty reasonable argument in defense of what he is saying. >> john stanton, one cannot ignore the sort of politics of this decision. we played that sound from the president's speech at the national defense university as sort of a reminder i think of his objectives here which is to unwind the 9/11 -- or not unwind but get us past the 9/11 mindset. but this event sort of takes us -- i don't know how ever many steps backward in terms of the sense of security around a sense that perhaps we do not need a counterterrorism complex, a national security complex that's as far-reaching as we have had. can roth, the director of human rights watch, wrote the war against al qaeda is over. this is an op-ed in the "washington post." he says these's fill yachts are significant actors in yemen and northe
states, and you take a look at the states and cities that are taxing people highly like detroit, and you see what eventually happens to them. >> pat, why don't we put a check box on the tax return, and everybody that wants to pay more can pay more? i'm all in favor of free choice. >> you've got a very good point. i really believe that people ought to say, look -- have a surtax for some of the programs our liberal friends support, and some can say, look, this is optional. you can choose to pay or not to pay, and check it off and see which ones do it. every time they've had something like that, about 1% of the folks check it off and pay extra. >> is that fair, ebony? >> i don't think that serves any real purpose, gentlemen. i think ultimately if we want our tax base to be supportive of upward mobility, and that's certainly, i think, the point there, then we need to be collective in that process. >> give me a percentage. out of every dollar that somebody makes in america, regardless of what their income is, what is the maximum somebody should have to pay pto the government? what should they

on to larence. caller: i have a question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federa
on an american jet over detroit. and dispatch bombs on a cargo plane bound for the u.s. three to four yemeni fighters were involved in the benghazi attack last year. the obama administration expanded the drone program in yemen. in 2011 drones killed and war -- anwar al awlaki. there are far fewer strikes this year compared to 2012. >> the number of attacks is falling because they have in fact gotten to some of the top tier leadership, is what the administration would say. i think what we're seeing this week calls that into question. it's hard to assess. >> right now there are more than 100 troops on the ground in yemen, split between the marines helping to protect the embassy and special operation forces down south training the yemeni forces on counterterrorism. >> thanks, chris. so how serious is the threat. joining suss michael hayden, now a principal at a global security firm. the drone strikes in yemen, do you think they're directly related to this latest threat that the u.s. detected coming from al zawahiri to a top al qaeda in yemen? >> it's hard to tell. we've had a campaign in yemen
the plane over detroit with the underwear bomber. we've had the attempt to try and destroy a cargo plane with a print cartridge that was created out of a bomb material. so they are active and they really pose the most dangerous threat. >> you know, this caution to americans traveling overseas. it's all well and good, but exactly how are you supposed to conduct yourself? if you're getting on a plane going overseas today or have loved ones overseas, what's the specific advice? >> well, you know, lester, really not a whole lot different than you would normally do. whenever you travel overseas, you're vigilant already. you're going to practice common sense, you're going to be smart about your safety and things like that. if you're going to travel to yemen on vacation, otherwise, most of the places you're going to go, continue to plan what you planned to do. >> is there an overabundance of caution given what happened in benghazi? >> i think we're overrotating a little bit on the benghazi angle based on what i've seen in the press. this is a very traditional threat intelligence stream. the bur
